Cydonia oblonga 'Ekmek'

A great choice for culinary uses, medium-size Ekmek (which means "bread" in Turkish) is the most popular quince in Western Turkey and new to American gardeners. Some sources even claim Ekmek can be eaten fresh off the tree! This cultivar has regularly produced large crops of juicy, yellow, pear-shaped fruit with creamy, yellow flesh at Raintree in the Pacific Northwest. Ekmek is self-fertile, disease resistant, cold hardy, and ripens in late summer. A must have for your garden - wherever you are!

At the turn of the 20th century almost every rural family had a fruiting quince tree they relied on for medicine, pectin, and fragrant, long-lasting fruits. The varieties we offer have delightful pineapple-like flavors. They are prized for cooking, jelly making, and adding to apple cider. Quince trees are self fertile and showy, with big white blossoms in late spring and unusual, fuzzy yellow fruits in fall.

My tree never came out of dormancy

I bought it last year and planted on receipt. It never came out of dormancy and ended up being a wasted investment.

My quince arrived in great shape and I was able to get it in the ground but I appreciate the video you shared about ways to store until you can plant

Received dried tree

The tree was dried after 6 hot days travel with ups. But I still think it might be worth it to have it a chance. So I planted it as directed. Unfortunately, after 4 months, it was not able to recover back.
